Paying For Residential Care: A Guide For Private Client Practitioners is authored by Austin Thornton, co-author of the previous editions of this title.
The new edition is a complete rewrite, which has been necessitated by the introduction of the Care Act 2014 and the repeal of the previous law.
In a departure from the second edition, the book includes a full section on the legal basis for NHS continuing care eligibility and how to pursue appeals.
It provides comprehensive cover of the Care and Support (Charging and Assessment of Resources) Regulations 2014, and will assist advisors in risk assessing the use of family trusts.
It is hoped that this work will allow those advisors who are prepared to put in the work necessary to learn the material to make a decent job of arguing with councils and the NHS on the range of topics that are covered.
The ultimate aim of this book is therefore to assist the public by enabling lawyers and other advisors to assist them.
